Another I have been interested in for some time is Handshake. It's an alternative to ICANN, which allows for the ownership of root domains, e.g.
; not https://rooshvforum.com
; so you could then use https://forum.rooshv
It's been adopted by NameCheap, which is one of the largest domain registrars. They reserved around 90,000 domains for the most visited sites online; and about 4% of them have been claimed.
Note that this has been booming (in terms of activity) during crypto winter (along with ENS). This is one reason I am bullish on them for -2025.
People involved with it are very passionate about it, though it lacks the publicity that propels coins towards higher market caps. It also has it's own chain, so that means any exchange has to integrate that, rather than slotting in another token.
I think it's a lot better a system them ENS, but I don't know if it has all that would be needed for a good run going into 2025. There are a number of solid projects like this that have relatively low market caps. Most of this is due to not marketing themselves much.
I am taking a punt on both ENS and Handshake.
My system for this season is to assign a likely high water mark in terms of highest possible market cap rank, e.g. #1 = Bitcoin, #2 = ETH.
I think ENS could hit #25, currently around #120. Handshake is about #700. I think #250 is feasible. If the stars really align though, it could go much higher.
Once a coin gets around those levels I will be looking to sell.
Now is a good time to buy GALA.
I see BTC $20-35K this year, so long as nothing much changes with the economy.
